fantastic! With over 100 labels represented and 3,000 releases. Hundreds of thousands are enjoying hearing wildly different kinds of music.

Further the benefit of filtering and catagorizing that the netlabel system performs is really helpful.

Thank you all-- artists, labels, admins, and Simon Carless (the creator of this section of the archive.org site).

This shows a future for creativity on net.

As a question for folks-- what tools or improvements would you want to see the Archive offer?

hmmm, another thing too: it would be great that the Top Download was weekly top downloads, monthly top downloads and all time top downloads, so, three categories...more exciting for all the artists and netlabels curators too. Thx. :)

i'd like to see the netlabels search include the Information/Notes fields & RSS for reviews ;]

Other than that rock on and congrats on the 3k mark everyone ;]

i think it would be great (and convenient) if you could provide us with a real counter of downloads(archive website+ftp+netlabels sites downloads from direct links) for an exact idea of all downloads. Thx.

I would second that. Better detailed stats (referer, breakdown by files, by release, by date etc), better management tools for files (importing pictures, renaming, adding meta information etc).
More:

1) I thought it would also be nice to have an A-Z browse option for all netlabels that would include further description and logos for all netlabels. That is from netlabel's intro page on archive.org that currently has all label below 30 releases being listed below with no further info. It discourage netlabels to work with archive.org other than simply for having the files hosted.

2) I think the current netlabel system creates a certain dynamic that makes it difficult for new releases to get noticed on each netlabel's page. So I would be delighted if you could think of a certain way for netlabels to promote their new releases that are not yet part of their top5 downloads or batting ratings. Currently, the system suffers of it being first thought of as archives and denies its potential for adding new and fresh content other than being refered directly from each netlabel's website outside of archive.org.

3) Also, it would be great if you released some database scripts and code for each netlabel to customize its "Welcome to" table.
